Lake forecast for Saturday and Sunday

ROANOKE, Va. – The past several mornings have felt more fall-like than anything else, thanks to a drop in humidity.

That’s also the case Saturday morning.

Temperatures, however, rise into the 70s and 80s each afternoon this weekend. This is thanks to a shift in the wind out of the west and southwest.

This same shift in the wind will force smoke out of the area, allowing for improved air quality.

Air quality improves late Saturday into Sunday

This all comes ahead of a slow-moving front that will produce severe weather to our west the next couple of days.

For us, it will result in scattered showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m. Sunday.
